Nothing glorifies physical bodies more than the Olympics, where we see a parade of exceptionally strong athletes with machine like precision and discipline who’ve trained their bodies to do extraordinary feats that most of us can simply dream of from our seat on the couch. It’s awe inspiring to see what humans can do with years of training and hard work, and their bodies are a testament to all that dedication.

In an effort to reform my ways, I’ve compiled a list of handy tips for healthy, happy, irony-free living. I hope you will take them into account as you go about your modern life. #authenticity More
